Enquire about this Artwork


In Buddhism, the Buddha was said to have spontaneously achieved Nirvana under a specific fig tree in India known as the 'Bodhi Tree.' But leading up to his Awakening, the Buddha had been on quest searching for spiritual truth. He engaged in various forms or spiritual practice, and nothing seemed to work. When he had given up his quest, he rested under the Bodhi tree and, in a flash, found the truth he had been searching for. This is abstract depiction of the Bodhi tree, with orange figs growing. When the figs are young, they are green and when they are ripe they are purple. But when, they are in transition, they are orange. These figs represent a person in the midst of a spiritual journey, ripening towards ultimate Truth.
